Mt. Tam Day of Thanks - Hosted by One Tam
Start off the holiday season by expressing your thanks for Mt. Tam and its surrounding communities.
Join us on Saturday, November 11th as we work to maintain the health of the meadows and grasslands at the Horse Hill Open Space Preserve. Spend the day removing French Broom in the company of like minded volunteers and land managers as we work together to steward the places we love. One Tam, a collaboration of Marin County Parks, Marin Municipal Water District, the National Park Service, California State Parks and the Parks Conservancy, is proud to work with sponsors MCBC, the Trail Partners and the Alto Bowl Horseowners Association to put put on this day of service.
"Why remove French broom?" Good question. French broom is an invasive plant species that overwhelms diverse grassland ecosystems. Horse Hill has been a restoration site for over 20 years and though it’s transformation has been remarkable, there is still work to be done.
